You can feel the Pitcairners when they first arrived. Beaut sunsets. Fascinating watching boats being hoisted up. Ingenious. Visited this area several times per day, each time different. Night and ghost shows here are also interesting.

VERY windy and sea spray when I got down to the pier but didn't detract ONE bit to the views and the experience.
